Game 81 lineups: Nats vs. Reds

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve reached the halfway point of the season. Yes, tonight is Game 81 for the Nationals. So how have they done to date? Well, if they can beat the Reds again tonight, they’ll sit at 49-32. Do the math, that’s a 98-win pace. Hard to complain much about that, right?

Bryce Harper and Ben Revere are back in the lineup after getting last night off, but Wilson Ramos gets to sit this one out, with Jose Lobaton behind the plate catching Tanner Roark.

Keep in mind the early 6:05 p.m. start time tonight. That’s to make sure they can get the fireworks in before the city-imposed curfew. Then again, with storms in the forecast, there’s a chance even the earlier start time won’t be enough to get this game completed in time. Stay tuned for udpates ...
